Does its purpose, DVI->HDMI

Nippon Labs ADT-HDMIM HDMI Male to DVI-D(24+1PINS) Female Adapter Converter
Nippon Labs ADT-HDMIM HDMI Male to DVI-D(24+1PINS) Female Adapter Converter

Pros: Works great,, it converts the DVI out from my monitor cables to a nice compact HDMI connection. Colors are brighter and Resolution crispy as toast! Connectors look above average quality. Constant and reliable connections, although dont pull on it, HDMI connectors dont lock on like DVI and VGA connectors.

Cons: Where did the LED go, i though there was one, oh well... not like im going to stare at the LED in the back, more like the screen.

Overall Review: MY new Hanns G/ Hanspree 23.6 monitor came with a VGA cable, why im not sure. Probably cause they cost 99c , but no DVI or HDMI cables... Fortunately, other monitors i bought in the past came with nice DVI cables :) Great for my video card, but... WHERE IS DVI connector to the HANNS G!!!!!!! Instead HDMI input !!! WT HECK! So, a few dollars and days later, and monitor settings later, perfect!

Most Critical Review

50/50 pleased, Write speed false advertized

PQI 2GB Secure Digital (SD) Flash Card Model AE30-2030-0101
PQI 2GB Secure Digital (SD) Flash Card Model AE30-2030-0101

Pros: It Works well, Read speed is high as advertised, 50X-60X 8MB/s but...

Cons: TOTAL lie on speed, Write speed is only 2.8 MB/s which is 20X,

Overall Review: Tired of memory people lying on their mem speeds, never buying PQI or A-Data cause of their false advertising again, going back to Kingston and Transcend. Tested write speed with a whole bunch of Mp3s, then a large 150MB file then a 900MB file. Max write speed 2.8mb/s

Overall great value, Well constructed, decent reserve

FREMO M66 6000mAh Lithium Polymer Power Bank External Battery Charger for iPhone, iPad, Galaxy S5, S4, Note 3, HTC One, PS Vista and other Smartphones and Tablets
FREMO M66 6000mAh Lithium Polymer Power Bank External Battery Charger for iPhone, iPad, Galaxy S5, S4, Note 3, HTC One, PS Vista and other Smartphones and Tablets

Pros: Great Bang for the buck if you get on sale! I got mine for 10$ after a shell shocker + coupon code deal. Solid Ports and connections, extremely well built Aluminum housing dissipates heat very well, keeps the unit from overheating. Power output is higher than rated, around 1.5A @ 5.0V Flat profile and small size is perfect for keeping it in your pocket Great power capacity for a unit of this size. Will keep your smartphone or tablet playing Netfilx all day

Cons: Does not have auto on feature when you want to recharge something, you have to press the power button for it to start discharging. Not stated capacity of 6000mAh. After a few complete discharge and charge cycles, I have determined the actual working capacity of this power bank to be approximately 4000mAh.

Overall Review: As with all power banks on the market, the advertised capacity is never the true working capacity. The battery has to retain some juice so it doesn't go bad. You always have to figure about 50-75% is usable juice. The Scud Elf, a power bank to be this small and this flat (the size of a iPhone 4s), 4000 mA is an amazing. It takes about 4 hrs to recharge on a 1A charger from empty to full. I wouldn't recommend using a 2.1 A charger cause it will shorten the life of the unit. I was really surprised as this power bank will output more power than it is rated. I would estimate about 1.5 A out, it powers and charges my Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 even while I'm surfing the net and watching NCIS. My HTC One M7 loves it as its partner I get two full recharges. This is a great buy, but i would not spend more that $20 for it, For a $29+ price range, I would look at a RavPower power bank, they have bigger capacities, great components and reliability.

Great alternative if your Wireless N and AC cant penetrate washing machines

TP-Link AV600 Powerline Ethernet Adapter(TL-PA4010 KIT)- Plug&Play, Power Saving, Nano Powerline Adapter, Expand Home Network with Stable Connections
TP-Link AV600 Powerline Ethernet Adapter(TL-PA4010 KIT)- Plug&Play, Power Saving, Nano Powerline Adapter, Expand Home Network with Stable Connections

Pros: Great price @ $39, Im getting quicker response times to internet browsing, netflixing in HD, Amazn Prime Video and overall internet performance over my previous wireless AC 1200 connections. Internet response time cut in half or more, Pings 5ms or less Near instantaneous web browsing and HD video playback. Powerline connections between the adapters was painless and as easy as a press of a button. + Fast connections between Powerline adapters. Nano Size is a plus! Compatible with Trendnet 200 Mbps TPL-308s

Cons: Payed 22$ for a third single adapter, better off buying two starter kits when on sale! 100Mbit port in adaptor is what limits your maximum speed download/ upload, Computer to Computer transfer speeds no greater than 12MB / sec aka 100Mbps, but that isnt bad considering Wireless N struggles to transfer data that fast even @ 300Mbps connections and most of us do not have greater than 15 or 30 Mbps internet plans with our ISPs. Remember real world wireless performance is a lot less than advertised.

Overall Review: Bought this kit hoping that I would get more stable connections and faster network bandwidth. Im using several PC and mac computers, each with varying hi performance configs and some decent router hardware. Despite my investments, I was getting ok internet performance, 2-5 sec delays from from any youtube, netflix video, or any higher bandwidth using sites. Normal 1 sec delays between web pages/ emailing. IT was really starting to bother me. Switching my network everything to 5 GHz, helped some, but not enough. So After doing some research, these TPlink powerline adapters seemed like an good buy. So here i am, trying them and Im amazed. Im getting a solid 224 Mbps connection from my 2013 Macbook Pro to my FIOS router, with amazing performance. Im not talking about theoretical speeds either, Computer to Computer connections are @ 337 Mbps with better performance than my Wireless AC connections. Even @ 867Mbps Wireless AC, Computer to Computer file transfers were improved from 8MB/sec to 12MB/sec. I wish i had got the TP-link PA5010 with gigabit ports, but @ double the price, IM PERFECTLY HAPPY. TY NEWEGG for extreme service and shipping times! Got my package in less than two days!!! HP DV6 with ASUS 867Mbps Wireless AC USB Custom PC with TPLink 450Mbps Wireless N 2012 Mac Mini with 2.4/ 5GHz 300 Mbps Wireless N 2013 Mac Book Pro with 867Mbps Wireless AC I live in an apartment where I have two walls, a washer/dryer. and 1 hallway between my computers and routers. The Two routers: Dlink Wireless DIR 860L AC1200 and Actiontec (FIOS), all systems were connected wirelessly.

Rock Solid Upgrade for PCs and 2012 Macs

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model F3-1600C11S-4GRSL
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model F3-1600C11S-4GRSL

Pros: Heat sinks are small enough to fit without problems, works great in my 2012 mac book pro and mac mini as well as HP DV6. Low Voltage 1.35V for 3rd and 4th Gen Intel Core i5 and i7s. Iron Egg guarantee is always a plus. Stable as a Rock

Cons: None,

Overall Review: I looked long and hard for RAM that would function in the newer Mac computers. I wanted to make sure that I was matching the specs because the 2012 mac computers use 1.35V 1600 MHz DDR3L with CL11 Timings memory. Low voltage memory seems a bit more expensive than the 1.5V and I was not about to spend a whole bunch of money on OWC memory. I have always put G.Skill RipJaw memory in my laptops and custom desktop builds and have never been disappointed. Gskill always has lifetime warranty and in my opinion is better quality than the Elpida and Hynix memory I replace in my laptops.

Amazing solution to having thick plaster walls and 2.4 GHz apartment congestion

TRENDnet TPL-308E2K Powerline AV200 Nano Adapter Kit, Up to 200Mbps
TRENDnet TPL-308E2K Powerline AV200 Nano Adapter Kit, Up to 200Mbps

Pros: Literally Plug and Play. The Nano adapters are nice and small, and only two prong. Works great with my Verizon Fios Router and an Apple Airport Express in AP mode. Zero loss in performance, matter of fact. My wireless performance as improved. Ping is 10ms, and my download speeds remained the maximum @ 25Mbps

Cons: None really, it works flawless and hits very high speeds. But beware, just cause its says 200Mbps, doesnt mean it is. 200Mbps may just mean 100Mbps up and down. But thats ok cause this has only a 100Mbps Fast Ethernet controller.. something shared by 95% of all powerline adapters... including the 500Mbps ones. Maximum speed is 12.5 MB/sec if you are moving around files in your network. But that isnt bad considering most 300 Mbps Wireless- N connections max out around 6-8 MB/sec.

Overall Review: Distance and wiring of your domicile is a huge factor. Modern wiring and you will get good range and speed. The distance of my setup is only 20 feet, but there are 4 shielded walls with a double washer, and AC unit between me and my router. I am getting full speeds and I love it. For $30 this is a steal. I cant wait till trend releases a Gigabit 500Mbps AV powerline adapter.
